Kanye West Compares Struggling As A Celebrity To Civil Rights Struggles In The 60's

 
Posted August 6th, 2014 @ 4:33pm

Kanye West claims that being famous is just like being a civil rights activist in the '60s, according to his recent deposition stemming from his assault of a paparazzi photographer at LAX last year. According to TMZ, which obtained the deposition transcript, Kanye tells the photog's lawyer, "I mean, in the '60s people used to hold up 'Die N**ger' signs... We, as [a] group of minorities here in L.A., as celebrities, have to band together to influence guys like this, guys trying to take pictures." When asked point-blank if he equates celebrities' struggles with the struggles of blacks, Kanye says, "Yes, 100... I equate it to discrimination. I equate it to inequalities." He also insinuated that Britney Spears was not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
